Review

If you are looking for a smartphone with a decent configuration at an unbelievable price of Rs. 5,999 then this is the best buy for you. You can’t doubt the brand value of the company with almost close to 35% share in Indian market that too by selling online and mostly in cities. I also bought this for my mother. The device can easily get your work done, of course, you can’t expect high-end features from a budget phone but it is a great choice in this price segment.

If you are planning to buy this phone at the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019 then the company has already released the next versions of this model i.e. Mi 5a and Mi 6a. I will brief you about both the models and which one to buy.

Mi 5a Specifications

Display – 5 inch 1280×720 HD (296 ppi)

Camera – 13MP (Rear) , 5MP (Front)

RAM – 2/3 GB (available in two variants)

ROM (Internal storage) – 16/32 (Expandable up to 256GB via SD card)

Processor – Snapdragon 425 (28nm chipset)

GPU  – Adreno 308

Battery – 3000 mAh

OS – Android 7.1.2 (Noughat) 

Price – 5,999 (2/16 GB) , 6,999 (3/32 GB) 

Comparison with Mi 4a Specifications

If you see then there are only a few minor changes like a higher version of Android and the dimensions are a bit slim except that nothing is changed. And i don’t know why but they have also reduced the battery capacity from 3120mAh in 4a to 3000mAh  in 5a. In this case, Mi 4a is still a better choice.

Mi 6a Specifications

Display – 5.45 inch 1280×720 HD 18:9 (295 ppi)

Camera – 13MP (Rear) , 5MP (Front)

RAM – 2/3 GB (available in two variants)

ROM (Internal storage) – 16/32 (Expandable up to 256GB via SD card)

Processor – MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm)

GPU  – PowerVR GE8320

Battery – 3000 mAh

OS – Android 8.0 (Oreo)

Price – 6,599 (2/16 GB) , 7,499 (3/32 GB) [Buy Now – Mi 6a]

Comparison with Mi 4a Specifications

As we can see here some changes like- bigger screen, better screen to body ratio, 12nm chipset processors which are much more power efficient than the 28nm chipset. Also, you get Android Oreo (8.0). Now if we compare it with the Mi 4a specifications then paying 500 more bucks is I guess worth as you get a better processor which not only improves battery life but performance is also better and on the top of that you get trending 18:9 screen ration which looks much better than traditional ones.

So, currently in 2019, I think Mi 6a is a better choice than both the predecessors.
